This update is notifying you of a new software release EDB Postgres™ Containers 2.4.  EDB Postgres Containers enable organizations to deploy and operate the EDB Postgres Platform on both Google Kubernetes Engine and Red Hat OpenShift, providing a clustered solution with high availability, read scaling, and monitoring. The solution is delivered with the following containers:
